( cheers and applause ) >> thank you! >> ifill: that was followed by saxophonist branford marsalis performing the national anthem. ray suarez is on the floor now among the delegates, where he's been each night this week. >> suarez: you know, gwen, one of the biggest events of this week is something that isn'tingt going to happen, the long-expected and long-planned-for stadium welcome for president obama tomorrow night where he would give his acceptance speech. because of threatening skies, that has been canceled and moved indoors to the arena where the rest of the convention has been held. well, it means some inconvenience for the people who were set to appear there. it means some inconvenience for the people who were staging the event, but the real problem is with the tens of thousands of people who gave tens of thousands of volunteer hours in order to qualify fo
, and that's, of course, a key swing state, believe that barack obama was not born in the united states. so this jocular, sarcastic reference to it recently by governor romney is not a joke. that this is something you can keep igniting and keep stirring up. aren't you astounded that a huge percentage of actual voters in the republican party in ohio, a reasonable state, believe the guy wasn't born in this country? >> sure. and same percentage -- same type of percentage believe he's still a muslimeen though it's clear that he never was and never has been. look, there are still warring flags out there and to my flends and colleagues in pennsylvania, don't take anything for granted. the voter i.d. law if it stands is going to hurt us. there's no question about that, chris. i still believe the debates are going to be a factor and governor romney can recover in the debates. lastly, don't believe for a minute that they're not going to spend any money in pennsylvania. the super pac will come in the last six or seven weeks and try to swamp the state with ads. swamp the state. >> i agree. all those p

privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going
as president of the united states. [applause] look around you, everyone. this has been the most diverse, most inclusive convention ever held anywhere in the united states of america. [applause] a convention not just of symbolism, but of substance. this is the first time that a major party platform recognizes marriages equality as a basic human right. [applause] and this is the reflection of who we are as a party and who we can be as a nation. because as democrats, as americans, whenever we have opened up our party and our country, whenever we have opened up our doors for more of our people, whenever we deepen our democracy and renew our commitment to equal justice under the law, we have grown stronger as a nation. last week, in tampa, we were promised hard truths. they were right about one thing -- the truth was hard to find. [applause] that is why they did not talk about their plan to cut taxes for millionaires by raising taxes on middle-class families with kids, on your family, by $2,000. they did not talk about their plan to replace the guarantee of medicare with a coupon, with a voucher t
of the united states. when president obama tried to sell his jobs bill last year over the refusal of the republican congress, he talked about the kinds of people who would get those kinds of jobs. >> it'a bill that would put pe btok,uig america. repairing our roads, repairing our bridges, repairing our schools. it would lead to jobs for concrete workers like the ones here at hilltop, jobs for construction workers and masons, en, trns engineers, ironworkers. put folks back to work. >> mike roweaid part of the problem was training. and training.d on opportunity ovndver,hat's at hear, we need more opportunity and we need better training. >> once again, there is a candidate who believes in job training, who understands we need morvocational training. >> one of the, i bve, mistakes we've made 20, 30 years ago was to start de-emphasizes vocational education. right now we've got shortages of folks in fields that need technical training, but don't necessarily require a four-yr college degree. >> mr. rowe went on to make a more subtle point about how we need as a country to appreciate the
